Schneider is offering a new cross-border intermodal service for shippers in Canada and the Southeastern U.S.

Schneider has expanded its intermodal service out of Montreal to markets in Florida and Georgia which bypasses the Great Lakes route. The company has also opened lanes from Montreal to Ohio and St. Louis. The new lane runs along the East Coast to Florida.

“We saw a desire for capacity, especially for our customers in Montreal who would ship containers northeast via intermodal to fill in tough service lanes,” said Jim Filter, Schneider senior vice president of intermodal. “This additional lane opens up possibilities for current and new customers to ship product quickly and more efficiently to the Southeast instead of by truck and trailer.”

Schneider is a provider of truckload, intermodal and logistics services. To learn more about Montreal Direct and other Schneider cross-border services by visiting
